Abstract Biodiesel production from microalgae is being widely developed at different scales as a potential source of renewable energy with both economic and environmental benefits. A discussion covers issues of several simple and robust methods for microalgae isolation; selection for traits that maybe most relevant for commercial biodiesel production; a combination of conventional and modern techniques as the most efficient route from isolation to large-scale cultivation; limitations posed by first generation biodiesel crops; and nutrients intake, environmental and culturing conditions, and lipid extraction technology.
